At Amersfoort International School, we create a learning community where students can share their perspectives, ideas, and experiences, and learn from one another. We are committed to providing a holistic education that develops the whole child and prepares them for success in their future endeavors.
With our primary years programme, we enable our students to develop into internationally-oriented and successful students in an ever changing world. Our approach to learning is centered around the following principles:
We believe that play is an essential part of learning, and we provide opportunities for children to learn through exploration, experimentation, and discovery.
We encourage children to ask questions, investigate, and find solutions to real-world problems through inquiry-based learning.
Our curriculum is designed to develop students' understanding of key concepts, such as sustainability, diversity, and social justice.
We strive to create a safe and inclusive environment where every child feels valued and respected, regardless of their background or abilities and are provided with equal opportunities to engage with the curriculum by removing barriers to learning.
We set high expectations for our students and provide a challenging curriculum that prepares them for success in the future, while instilling a mindset that enables them to embrace mistakes as a natural part of the learning process and to use them as a catalyst for improvement.
We believe that learning is a life-long process, and we encourage our students to develop a love of learning that will stay with them throughout their lives.
We prepare our students to become responsible global citizens who are aware of and engaged in the world around them.
We believe that learning is a social process, and our teaching approach encourages collaboration and communication between students, as well as between students and teachers.
